Applewood Farm & Winery


Applewood Farm & Winery has been producing unique, award winning fruit wines, Cider and Meade for over 22 years. The farm is located in Seagrave, Ontario. near Port Perry by Lake Scugog. The owners are Matt and Stephanie Passafiume .

Applewood Farm Winery first opened it's doors in Stouffville in September of 2000.   The original winery location was built on the farm that Matt grew up on.  It was there, on his parents farm, that he learned how to grow strawberries, apples and pumpkins.  Matt and I met in high school and we were married in 1998.  The next two years were busy!!!  We built & opened the winery, and became new parents.   Our first daughter was born in 2000,  second daughter in  2002,  our son in 2005 then another daughter in 2007.  It was a crazy run...never a dull moment.  Matt worked at his "real" job during the day while the babies and I attempted to hold down the winery. We did that for a few years until it was time to make a decision. As luck would have it, Matt's position at the MNR came to an end.  Sadly, Ringwood Fish Culture Station closed it's doors and the decision was made for us.  Since then, it has been full steam ahead.  Sometimes things that seem bad are actually blessings in disguise.

At the 2020 All Canadian Wine Championships they won Best Fruit wine of the Year for their N/V Madrigal Meade 

Spring begins with Strawberry and Mulberry picking in mid-June to mid-July. The fall brings pumpkins & squash and farm fun.  During the picking season they offer wagon rides (when possible), a children's playground, giant corn maze and room for the whole family to relax and enjoy.

Drop by the farm winery and be sure to ask about their Cinnamon Heart Moonshine. Also try their Sweet Lola Strawberry Liqueur

Sunset Applewood Farm and Winery


One of our most popular wines, we blend Raspberries, Cranberries, and Black Currants to create this off dry (3), 13%alc./vol. wine with Big Raspberryfruit in the nose and crisp acidity. Possibly the best wine we have ever tasted with turkey or other poultries. One of our top sellers! Double gold winner at the All Canadian Wine Championships!


Mac Meade

Multiple gold medals awarded & one of our best sellers A sparkling wine made of fresh picked fall Macintosh apples and a blend of the softest of honeys. Medium sweet (4) with good acidity this wine pairs well with soft cheeses and smoked salmon. 9%alc/vol

Iced Cider

Gold Medal Winner (All Canadian Wine Championships) This wine is very sweet (22), 12% alc./vol.. The intense apple character is derived from freezing the crushed apples in the cold of winter (below -20 degrees C), By removing most of the water (as ice) from the apples we are left with all the natural sugars and balancing acidity. Pair with fresh fruits, fruit flans and pastries.
